"Aurelius to a generation of gen zers like, wow, right holiday discovered Seneca. It's awesome. But it's so smart and so good. He's such a visionary guy. And you can study this the philosophers or, as I mentioned before, the works of Bach or understanding nature in a very metaphysical way or a traditional or non traditional faith or spiritual practice or a meditation practice, there's lots of ways to do this, but we must have a transcendental walk because life is simply too intense and exhausting and boring if we don't do that. So how does one embark upon that if this is a new alien concept? Yeah, I've asked that Dalai Lama that very thing. You know, it's like asking for a friend. And I have a more traditional religious life, actually proceeds from this, because I realized, I mean, there are times when I was more religious in times when I was less religious. But in my 30s, I recognized that this was a big hole in my soul. And I didn't need to go across state lines to go to a different supermarket. What precipitated that? I need. I recognize the need that I needed, I needed better, more peace and better perspective. And I just have a sense that this is right. Now, what part is right? I don't know. I don't actually know. But I need a physics of spirituality. And just as I would not try to create my own mathematical structures and create my own alternative system of mathematics, I don't feel like I have to do so in a religious way. Other people feel differently about it. But the Dalai Lama talks about kind of a pyramid for the basis of the pyramid is moral living. Figure, and this is a jungian perspective too. Carl Jung said that happiness comes from defining your values and living according to them. If you know what your values are and you don't live according to them or you don't know what your values are, you won't be happy. Defining your values and your morals and living according to them with impeccable integrity. That means when they say make your bed. I mean, that's just a boring example of living according to what you think is right, and even when nobody's watching, living according to it. What I recommend is that people don't lie ever. Just don't lie. No, when the murder is at the door and says, you know, where's the victim? Fine. But that's not what we're talking about. That's a different podcast. That's a different podcast. Or a Sam Harris podcast, maybe. So figure out write down what your moral values are and make a plan to live according to them a step one. Step two is build a meditative practice. Build a practice of contemplation. Maybe that's formal meditation, maybe that's walking in the Woods, but you need a practice without devices where you can be a piece. And finally, you need to read wisdom. You need to expose yourself to people who have had deeper thoughts and more profound thoughts than you. So number one, act according to your value, learn your values, act according to all these practice your values, write it down journalist. Number two is get your contemplative practice in order and make sure you start with at least 15 minutes a day. And number three is actually read the wisdom literature in whatever tradition you want and do that daily for at least 15 minutes. Starting there, your life will change. Your world will rock. In this next clip, I sit down with my wife, Julie,
The Sacred Heart of the Warrior
"carl jung" Discussed on The Sacred Heart of the Warrior
"New dimension, all these doors to myself open that I didn't even know were over there. And in those moments, I walked into this is all metaphorically speaking, but I walked into rooms in my heart that I didn't know existed. And I discovered that there was things written on the wall that I wanted for myself that I couldn't I couldn't place where these desires came from. And one of those desires was to travel the world. I didn't grow up traveling at all. It wasn't part of my family. It wasn't something that I felt the lack of certainly, but suddenly I discovered this desire to travel the world within myself and really, and as part of that journey, have something to give, not just to go and see the world as to take it all in. I don't like, I don't like this respecting the word tourists because I respect anyone who leaves their home to travel for any reason. So I don't want to speak ill of us because many of them are very brave in their own way. But I wanted something to give. And that introduced me to this notion that inside myself, there was something I couldn't articulate it, but something was lacking. Something was lacking. So a couple of years later, but now about 18 months later, I was back in college. I was a college student. I did my startup, and I'm finished that up and went back to school. And I took a class on for the first time on Carl Jung. And that was a beautiful introduction to the power of myth. And the way that myth can speak specifically to us as men. And there was a moment where the professor was talking about how you can look at The Lord of the Rings series of movies, which were coming out of the time as this wonderful myth about men and masculinity and all the different faces of masculinity from the warrior to the wizard to the hobbits and I was like, oh my gosh, all of these things live within me.
The EntreLeadership Podcast
"carl jung" Discussed on The EntreLeadership Podcast
"I just have a person in my life. Some of my closest friends are banker or an HVAC guy or somebody who runs a ranch. I asked them questions about ranching and banking in HVAC. And it just limits the drama in my life. And the questions, all of this goes back to God have people and you've got to have people that you get good wisdom from and you've got to accept that wisdom and move on with your life. Yeah, because in an isolation, there's a lot of negative self talk, and we have no one else to kind of show us reality. Yeah, there's a great Carl Jung quote famous psychologist and I'm going to butcher a little bit, but if you don't know who you are, people who will tell you. And so you've got to have a group of people that you trust that speak into your life and you have to begin to build your, like this is what I'm good at. This is what I'm not good at. And then I'm just going to head off into the world, and I'm not going to keep going for more information and keep watching the news and scrolling and scrolling and scrolling. That's a recipe for madness. And that's one of the benefits of our advisory groups that are part of entre leadership elite, where you're around, like minded business owners with our coaches, helping you navigate this wild wild west of business. Well, I'm not alone. I'm not crazy. Oh, he's done this. They're doing, right? And so someone says, hey, I didn't have a business deal. I went and I went and sat in on one of the advisory groups. It was a riot number one in the chat. I was watching they were all talking and it was great conversation, but in the chat they were talking trash about each other. And I was like, these guys are actually Friends too, right? So they're building relationships, which is critical. But if one person's about to have to fire somebody. It's not like, well, I'm not going to Google. How to fire somebody, and I'm going to watch 17 ted-talks on how to fire somebody because you're going to get 17 different things from 17 different experts. You got 5 or 6 men or women who have not fired somebody yesterday is hard. And this is what I had to do. Or I did it like this and it was a disaster, don't do this. And so you have a group of people who are living it and doing it. And that brings me to what I would say is the last big issue with confidence and leaders is a leadership is isolating. You just end up by yourself. And if you've been around me, I don't know the entree crowd who's been around me. I just harp on this over and over. But when your body recognizes its lonely, man, it causes chaos. It just rings every bell you've got. And if you feel like I have to like I'm thinking back to old tribes, I got to go get the food, I have to prepare the food. I've got to watch out for the children. I've got to do security. You can. You can't do everything. And so you end up feeling unconfident across your entire platform. Because you don't have other people in your life. You've got to get other people. So if there was something you said, a leader's listening to go, John, I know I suffer from one or more of these things. And it's killing my confidence. What would be a step to take to get in the right direction? There is none zero, no long-term behavior change, done in isolation. So I would tell people start number one with a group. Get some people in your life. Whether that's a formal group, like an advisory group, whether that's a couple of friends in your neighborhood, I do think proximity is really important to having people that you just do life with on the regular. And then you begin to humbly talk through what skills do I not have. Like, dude, no, I'm running like an organization. I've never done this. Or my favorite is, I just had a kid and now I'm a dad. I don't know what that is. My dad didn't show up. I don't have the skill set so we can freak out or just abandon or just watch Netflix, or I can dig in and learn those skills, how to be a dad, how to be a mom. What are those things I need to do? So getting with a group, learning those skills, and then over time, being very careful about the information we allow into our heads because those stories that other people tell us over time become the stories we tell ourselves. Powerful stuff. Well, John, thank you so much for being on the podcast. Always love having you on. Thanks. I feel a little more confident standing a little taller already.
Lex Fridman Podcast

"Remember that. Like, wow. Okay. And I remember thinking, all right, I'm just going to start punching people. Because like obviously my dad thinks it's a good idea if I go running around punching people, as long as I don't cry. I remember certain things about, you know, and also this is, again, like we were talking about watching Lenny Bruce and getting a timeline of what the world was like back then. This is a different world. In 1970, this would have been 1972. It's a different world back then, man. A really different world. It's some of that. So Carl Jung talked about the shadow. It's the unconscious where you have dark stuff and oftentimes you use a project. There's stuff that you're very self critical about yourself, but because it's in your unconscious, you use it to project onto others. You see it as flaws and others. And that's a good way to, like, whatever it gives a quote like everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. So that's a nice way to investigate yourself. Like something that pisses you off, you start asking questions if you don't mind. And that's how you bring it to the surface. But anyway, from that, those are formative years. From that time, there's still stuff in your unconscious, you think you have an examined, some dark shit. I don't think so. I don't, I'm not aware, if it is, 'cause I've looked. You know? Like if someone, you know, someone says, you know, I left something over your house. Like, where'd you leave it? I don't know. Like, all right, I'll go look. Get a real thorough look. But I'm pretty sure. Pretty sure it's not there. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know. I think I've looked. I mean, it's certainly I think the positive effect also was compounded by the fact that when my mother married my stepdad, who's a great guy, who was a hippie, very different. We moved around a lot. And so the bad thing about that was I didn't really develop long-term Friends. The good thing about that was that I was forced to develop my own opinions about things. Instead of adopting an opinion of the neighborhood in the group about anything, I was forced to form my own thoughts and opinions about almost everything. And so it made me much more of an independent thinker. So that on top of the fact that losing my quote unquote hero very early on, and then having to form my own opinions about things, it left me with a very independent streak, you know, in terms of and if I hadn't done the things that I got interested in, martial arts and then comedy. If I hadn't gotten interested in those things, I would have been fucked because I was just too independent for normal jobs. I was too independent for school. I just didn't want to listen to people. I was too feral..

"And again, I don't think people should be just turning against her and team him. No. Totally not just some innocent victim, but everyone is very polarized and they're thinking and no one thinks with any nuance. And that's really cool. Let's bring in the nuance on the Johnny dep, because very few people do this now. When he was using, he's a severe addict alcoholic, severe, blacked out a lot. I bet he was a scary fucking dude when he was wasted. So scary. Yeah, and that's abuse. That's abusive. If she were my patient, I'd say get the hell out of there. Who knows where this is going to go? Who knows what he's liable to do? But the problem with the borderline is they go in for the drama. That's the problem. Oh, yeah, they rival off of it. Yeah. So how do we solve this, Leah? Come on now. Solve it for us right now. I'm just happy that with all my issues, I'm not borderline. I know that. Well, I bet when you were using you appeared borderline. I bet you. Oh, for sure. When I was using absolutely a 100%. I also really don't believe that I'm bipolar two, which I've been diagnosed with because I think bipolar two is such a like all those hypomanic traits are also coping mechanisms for addicts who are not getting the help they need. So very interesting, you would say that. I would say the vast majority, not just the majority, but the vast majority of addicts diagnosed bipolar in the first two years of their sobriety were not. They were either look, by the way, a lot of them are diagnosed when they're using, which is insane. Because everybody looks bipolar when they're using it. That's insane. However, let me say this. In that first two years of sobriety, mood stabilizing medication can be very, very helpful. Because when you're in that state when your brain is on fire and it's still detoxing for those first two years, your mood's all over the freaking place, right? And so it has some so when people get that diagnosis, I just go, okay, fine, take the depakote or take the lithium, whatever. And it's helpful. It's helpful. But two or three years out, you should be thinking about getting off because the probability of being bipolar is very low. And you're right about hypomania. Hypomania is not bipolar. Right? There's a lot of hype. Exactly. Yeah, there's a lot of, it's a thrill state and addicts are prone to being into that. That's what workaholism is. It's what a lot of business people do. It's a lot of government people do. They don't sleep. They're into it. They're excited about stuff all the time. And they're hypomanic. But that's not really bipolar, really. I mean, it could be, but it isn't exclusively so, which is, it's interesting that you brought that up. I bet you talk to your peers in the rooms about that. You're still going to meetings? Yeah, I still go to meetings and I definitely talk about my outside issues or whatever. You know, I just, yeah, I was actually diagnosed with all my 30th birthdays, so that was like my third year into sobriety. And I was on, you know, they put me on so many different things that didn't work. And obviously, if I was on SSRIs, which helped. And if I was actually truly bipolar, it would have spun me into like an actual mania. So I just don't think that's exactly right. There's not that many doctors that know how to deal with addicts. There just isn't. Leah, I rarely come across them. Rarely. And there's a shit on the claim and don't know what the fuck they're doing. They really don't understand this illness. They don't understand it. And less than the illness, they don't understand recovery. They don't believe in it. They have no faith in it. They don't understand the process and all the stages of recovery. I mean, this is a highly nuanced experience that's getting you back to a fully thriving life. Better than you ever knew you could be. You know, dealing with all the pain and all the shit, you're finally getting there. And very few physicians have experience with that very, very, very few. And it kills me. It kills me. The spiritual aspect of the program really throws because I've had doctors be like, why is God involved? And I'm just like, oh, stop. Well, we know what's interesting about that is we can leave that alone. We don't have to participate in any of this, not our business. Carl Jung, Carl Jung. That alcoholics need a spiritual aspect to recover. He did. A spiritual experience, he said. They have to have an spiritual moment, spiritual experience. And he's right. Yeah. And I would say it's even a little more nuanced. You have to have a moment of clarity. You have to have a moment of change. And you have to find something in the spirit after that, or even as part of that. And whatever that means, I have no fucking idea what that even means half the time. I just know that alcoholics know what it means. And so I have great reference for it. And that's my point, doctors can stay.
Hay House Meditations
"carl jung" Discussed on Hay House Meditations
"Altogether has had an unlived uplifting effect, yes. And you use that example in the book to illustrate the nature of spirit and power. And I think that's a really good example. So you're saying that with groups like that with AA that raises the consciousness level of all of us collectively. Yes. So anything that is very positive tends to uplift all of mankind. Because all the mankind is connected to this same unconscious database which Carl Jung called the database of consciousness. And we're going to talk a little bit more about the subject after the break and we'll be right back with doctor David Hawkins..
Lex Fridman Podcast

"Was not always focused on cures or treatments, but was more focused on insight. What does it mean? How can we help people understand why they're feeling something or thinking something or dreaming something? And that insight separate even from treatment was an interesting thing. As long as one was honest about that and said, you know, we're going for understanding we're going for insight. Maybe it's usually just pause on that. If we look at the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. What do you make of the ideas that he had? So you mentioned taking the unconscious subconscious seriously. That's like step one, like that there could be worlds we do not have direct access for. Probe with them through conversation or is that too simplistic to call psychoanalysis conversation? That's not too simplistic. But that's right. And I think that was valuable. Where Freud ended up breaking from some of his contemporaries, he was very focused on this unconscious as being so tightly linked to libido and really, from his perspective, you couldn't really separate the operation of the unconscious mind from these aspects of a little bit in this aspect. And that was one reason. You know, sexual sexually related drives. Carl Jung, who was his contemporary, that's one factor that led to them separating was Carl Jung felt there was a lot more to the unconscious than this libidinous aspect of it..
CLEANING UP THE MENTAL MESS with Dr. Caroline Leaf
"carl jung" Discussed on CLEANING UP THE MENTAL MESS with Dr. Caroline Leaf
"I mean, this is what you be talking. It's vital. You can't you can't move forward if you don't deal with it. And we can deal with them. We've got this power in us. Exactly. Exactly. So doctor leif it's like, we're using the same. Where do you think different language for the same style? Same concept. They love how you neuroscience. Yeah, no, but you are you bringing in more language around the core concept of being wired full of you giving us better language for understanding what that feels like, which is beautiful. This book really tunes into that and have find that and make that part of your everyday reality. Exactly. So this is a big concept here is the sun moon practice that I'd love to share from the UR whole chapter. And this brings up the concept of our shadow a bit, which is these Carl Jung talks about this as well, the disowned parts of us, the parts of us that we don't like to show. And we don't like to talk about. So I definitely recommend doing the gaps practice first, doing a meditation first, and then just coming to a place of real stillness and calmness as much as we can and muster. And then what this practice entails is getting out in your journal, getting out some paper. And on one column, you write your son qualities. So it's not as linear as but this is how we're this is how we're explaining it here. So the sun qualities are the things that you like to share about, oh, I'm a good friend. I'm patient. I listener, I share my stuff, whatever it is. And that's easy to recall. But then we want to sit and breathe and show up for ourselves. And then write our moon qualities. So the shadow side. And be really honest. And sometimes you do this privately that sometimes hard to go in there, but it's incredibly freeing. You can write out, you know, actually can be pretty judgmental. And I can be mean, and I can be petty, and I can be stingy or whatever words you want to use. And you sit. And even as I say those words, those have strong energy. I can feel sensations coming up going, right? So it's just these sensations of the ego, which has a reaction in identifying wants to push away, say, no, that's not me. But the problem is if we don't bring these things to the surface, then they kind of remain these dissonant parts of us. So it's like doctor leaf, someone looking at you and being like, oh, hello, I'm wanting you to like them, but then deep down in the back of their subconscious, they may think, oh, but if you know how I was or if you know that I did these things, you wouldn't really like me. So it's like we're almost self sabotaging and we're not really bringing our full light. So in this practice, we meditate and then we bring up our sun list. And then we bring up the moon list. And then we look at them side by side..
"carl jung" Discussed on Mysterious Universe
"And what max had done through history just through history waving the strange fate, apparently he'd gotten himself involved with the doctor beer, doctor beer was an acknowledged and respected scientist. He came up with a lot of the theories about inoculation, like he's well known for inoculation. And so what he would do is he would give hate treated bacteria to people, which would obviously kill the bacteria, but it introduced it to their immune system to kickstart natural immunity. So inoculation was a big deal, but through him. He somehow made acquaintance with a doctor Freud and Jung, Carl Jung, and when he made doctor Freud and Carl Jung, he strikes up this relationship with Jung. And under the tutelage of Jung, he was under this idea. This is a doctor feel good about treating people from this perspective of the collective, unconsciousness. And he felt that and this is around the time without creating things like which are now paxil and Ritalin and LSD was being all these substances were being utilized at the time. And he thought that if he could mix these things with different enzymes with hormones with serums that he could generate these magical elixirs based on the teachings of Carl Jung. So what treat the collective oncologist for some kind of concoction? Yeah, all these wealthy patients that were suffering these neuroses that were coming to Yong. They started getting these ideas about how they could treat them through ultimately affecting the collective unconsciousness through the use of these substances that were being created. I know. What the hell? I did the same thing. I'm like, are you kidding me? This is just crazy. But what he was doing, max was only concerned about looking at ways to get his clients high enough to ignore their illnesses. And that's what it does, right? Government campaigns about methamphetamine. Methamphetamine truly I don't want to come down to people on drugs, but methamphetamine is just the worst..
The Wellness Mama Podcast
"carl jung" Discussed on The Wellness Mama Podcast
"It you say aw. Hello demon bob. Thank you for reminding me that i have an opportunity to share my feelings with my husband and let them know what my wants feelings and needs are and see if we can find healthy compromise. So that we're all getting what we need and we all feel supported and we can all work together to find a solution. If you don't name it then it stays in your unconscious. You just walk around. Brooding and people are depressed. And how many times have you seen someone that was anxious or depressed and said well what's going on in the answer is i don't know that means they're being affected by something that's unconscious. All neurosis is a compensatory illness. It means you're compensating for something that you haven't identified but it may be in your unconscious it may be coming through your gene line for example. If you come from a family line of neurotic anxious women or men you may not know why you're neurotic and anxious all the time but until you start doing spiritual investigations and look into your family tree and addressing those feelings and say. Aw there's that demon of anxiety again once you look at it. You're now changing it because as soon as you look at it you put light on it. And now it's not in the unconscious it's now objectified and it's in the conscious so you can work with it there so once we bring it up into the conscious than we name it and we blame it. We do the same thing. I teach people that have addictions to food. So you eat the chocolate chip cookies because you love them but you keep associating them with something sweet and tasty that you really like. But how about if you're honest about what happens when you eat it and instead of seeing a chocolate chip cookie you see a swollen abdomen. Lots of gas and pimples and foggy mind so once you name it there's that there's the gas the temples and the bloating and you tame it me find something else that tastes just as good and is just as fun to eat but doesn't give me. Gas pimples imploding. then you're learning how to bring the unconscious into the conscious and change the behavior so that you can be dream affirmative and life affirmative otherwise. You just excuse yourself right into the jail of addiction which is loss of freedom for anyone to truly have freedom in their life. The have to engage their own unconscious. Identify what the limiting beliefs and behaviors are and work with them in a conscious way or they will always be a puppet on invisible.

Pathways to Happiness with Nena Lavonne
"carl jung" Discussed on Pathways to Happiness with Nena Lavonne
"I know lot of people claim to have magical solutions or books or courses but the truth is carl. Young said it himself. There is no magical way. There is no universal way it all starts with introspection and it is not a race it is not. You know something that has to be or even could be done overnight if we're going to dig as deep is going to take time and it may even take help. If there is a lot there you may even want to seek the help of therapist but if you want to start this process you want to. I tell yourself that whatever comes up it's okay. Hey you are certainly not the only person that has these aspects of themselves that has these thoughts or impulses our desires or emotions. You are merely a human so let go of the shame when you start this process intel yourself again that no matter what comes up that you are still a good moral person that deserves self love and self acceptance some of the ways that we can start to look at. Our shadow is through. Journaling or meditating or if you have someone else in your life that is up for the journey having long and deep discussions remembered that the goal is wholeness not perfection to acknowledge these parts of ourselves. That have been denied and repressed and when we realize our shadow it's really a source of renewal and that simply yet awareness. Another young quote. That really sums it. All up is by not being aware of having a shadow you declare a part of your personality to be non existent then. It entered the kingdom of be non-existent which swells up and takes on enormous proportions. If you get rid of qualities you don't like by denying them you become more and more unaware of what you are you declare yourself more and more non existent and your devils will grow fatter and fatter and if we think about it in life we have to be here for ourselves. We have to show up for ourselves. We have to love and take care of ourselves all the different parts of ourselves and we all have had lives that have included pain in them somewhere. Some some of us have had a lot of pain and so these are things that we really can no longer deny. We need to offer these parts of ourselves love and acceptance and understanding because they came from somewhere. We did not voluntarily come into this world with all these negative emotions. They came from experiences. They came from conditioning. They came from a lot of different sources. But we have to really figure out where the root of these things came from so that we can start to address them and we can really start to heal so if you decide to embark on this journey just know that it is not always an easy process and it can really dig up a lot of this pain but will. We are courageous enough to do this. We can really really transform personality in our lives because we become so much more comfortable in her own skin. We become more self reliant and we really start to heal these parts of ourselves. That are still suffering so i would love to hear your thoughts on. This is the shadow of concept that makes sense to you. Did you find that you resonated with this. And is integrating the shadows. Something that intrigues you or something that you have decided as a process that you want to undertake please let me know in the comments and if you are interested in learning more about the shadow self or about carl. Young there are just tons of resources. Available on the internet and young's own books are mind blowing so you might also want to consider going directly to the source. I really also hope that this gave you a better understanding of what the the shadow south actually is..

"To the subconscious so the choice becomes face this dark part of ourselves and it understanding and love and healing or continue to shove it down and hope and pray that it doesn't come out in a moment that really matters so one of the questions that was sent in was. Does everyone have a shadow or does everyone have a dark side. So have to answer that in terms of the actual theory. So if we're going with the actual theory the answer is yes. We all have a shadow. We all have dark side. We all suffer trauma in her life big and small and that leads to the creation of this shadow. We all do so. These unconscious aspects of her personality are often parts of ourselves that our ego intentionally hides from us so we don't have to see it or acknowledge it and young had a quote about this. Which is the shadow personifies everything that the subject refuses to acknowledge about himself. So it's like we try to show our best face to other people but we're also trying to show what we think is our best face to our own cells and a lot of the time it grows when we have the experience. That are too painful to consciously deal with or are unresolved. The shadow becomes kind of like a been where we just throw any part of ourselves that we can't handle any situations anything that is too painful anything. That is too embarrassing. So these parts of ourselves just kinda get buried without us healing them or even acknowledging them or acknowledging how bad they hurt us because it's also not just the experience. It's what we have decided that these experiences mean we can interpret them as meaning. We are disgraceful and or stupid or inferior and all these feelings are so painful and so traumatic but again we take these feelings and we just throw them in the bin and certainly they do not go away they just live somewhere in the shadow until we are strong enough to face them accept them and ultimately release them..

"That i'm just not one hundred percent sold on but i do like to study them still because i feel like there is something behind them one of his other theories which you have probably heard of is called the collective unconscious now this is supposed to be all the knowledge and the imagery that every single person is born with and shares due to our ancestral experience and a lot of people. Take it to me that we can also sense how the world is feeling collectively around us and that it can influence how we are feeling and this is something that i've always found interesting and definitely haven't completely tossed out the window but it wasn't something that really resonated with me deeply like the shadow has at least not until this whole crazy year happened. I really started to feel like the weight of everyone's suffering was on my shoulders to not just the things that i had to deal with personally because of the situation but i started to feel like i was sensing the pain of everyone and with the whole election season here in america. I know we have a lot of international listeners. But i'm sure you heard about this on the news. But i had just this feeling there. Was this dark energy. I felt so much anger and stress and division and sadness in the world on both sides of the aisle and it just made me wonder if maybe there was really something to this collective unconscious that there were just so many negative emotions happening collectively that we all just started to feel it. And i'm still not sure about it all but it was the first time that are really the theory being potentially plausible. And that's why i love you. Know studying psychology and philosophy because doing so really plants little seeds in your brain and with time the dot start to kind of connect when they are things that you feel that you can apply to your own life or that could help you better understand the universe because truly there is just so much we do not know..

"He was also the person that proposed developed a concept that we use all the time even apart from psychology which is the idea of having either an extroverted or introverted personality and his work overall has been incredibly influential in the study of literature religion. And of course psychiatry. The first thing i have to mention. Is that some concepts in psychology. Have been concretely proven through imperial evidence. So there is no question whether or not these things are real. We have undeniable proof that this is how these things operate but when we are talking about a loss of fee or psychology not everything can be proven by the scientific method and to technically prove something in the realm of science the hypothesis must not only be testable but it must also be able to be falsifiable and this is simply not possible when we are talking about things that we cannot see or are not measurable in any way so when we are talking about things that are spiritual in nature or philosophical. There's never really any way to say these. Things are absolutely true so we have to be careful. Have to make sure that i give that caveat a lot of times we can have conviction. That's something israel but without being able to have tangible evidence. We can't scientifically say that something is valid or real but that doesn't mean that we can't find support for something and in many cases it doesn't mean that something is not worth studying just in the way that we can't prove something like the shadow to be true. We are also unable to prove that it is not true so for example. Almost all psychologists believe that we have a subconscious. Mind that controls much of what we think. And what we do. But there's no way we can scientifically proved this even though it makes perfect sense and seems to answer a lot of questions and this is the same type of thing that we are dealing with when we're talking about something like this shadow or like the soul for example so my invitation to you today is to see if it rings true.

"If we die. Okay fine along. Do you talk michael as long as you have. I usually allow things to run the natural course. But if you've got time restrictions. I realized that seven o'clock pants You'd probably want to have some dina certain. Sorry it's it's up to you. Yeah well let's we go up to an hour up to fifty minutes or something like that. So let's let's just begin and dive in and i'll follow your lead. Yeah yeah let's let's start on this point of meaning and i guess the first question would be you know what what happens if we don't if we don't find a sense of meaning in our lives and why's that Kind of a focus of union work. We're well you know. We're miserable if we don't find meaning in life and throughout the history of humankind as you well know so much of humanities life has been constructed by extreme impoverishment at the struggle for survival totalitarian regimes and so forth the but there's something inside of each of us will call it the human psyche loses after all the greek word for soul. There's something inside of each of us that suffers when we're disconnected from what is meaningful to us and You can't impose meeting on someone else. It's sort of like saying to someone well. My favorite food has to be more favorite food. We would think that's kind of ridiculous assumption but there's something inside of each of us that knows what is right for us and when it gets violated as so often happens it is and that word pathology mean comes from the greek word for suffering. Toss it's a solidarity psychopathology. When i spent a lot of time working with folks in states of psychopathology means simply the suffering of the soul. And when you think about where so much therapists today you know. We are behaviors. That's true and that's important when we are cognitive processes that's true that's important we are biological processes as well. That's true and that's important but there's something else beyond all that if you add all that together you don't.

The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Podcast
Mind, Body Connection
"Hi Everyone, I'm Oprah. Winfrey would you answer true or false? Two the following statement my emotions and my thoughts have a direct bearing on how physically healthy I am, and I'm sick and my mental attitude can help to make me well well. My guest say that both are true that there is a crucial link between the mind and the body. My first guest is a surgeon who works with cancer patients that other doctors have sent home to die. He tells them. To Abandon Conventional Treatments like chemotherapy, but to combine them with a whole new belief system about life, and the purpose for living his remarkable results are documented in his book. It's called. Love Medicine and miracle. Welcome Dr Bernie, Siegel to. My second guest says that there is a direct connection between our emotions and our vulnerability to disease. Specifically, he says that certain emotions increase the risk of strokes and may even trigger certain viruses to cause disease. He even says that tumors have been known to shrink if a patient thinks them smaller welcome, clinical psychologist and author of Super Immunity, Dr Paul Pierce saw walking. If you can think certain tumors smaller, why can't you think other things? Why can't you if you have colon cancer? Why can't you think that you don't have it or if you have a heart murmur? Why can't you think that you don't have it? Why do you have control over some things and not control over others point a great deal of control everything right ideas at every thought you. You have results in a shower of chemicals that alter the body. It's defense system its immune system. It's healing capacity. There's a healer within that we have control over there is disease. There are things that break in US illnesses, a natural part of living, but we all get sick. Sometimes we can find that healer within somebody what said it. You know that God cures. The doctor sends the bill. That must have been dad who said back. And you have documented many many cases of people who? Appear to have miracles in their life, but you say there's no such thing as Miracle Yeah. Needs in his book cancer ward used the term self-induced healing. Yes, the interesting thing about medicine. If you get back to bills in business medicine, the only business that has not studied suggests we do a lot to people who don't do well. Nobody stops and says why don't you get cancer? Why don't you AIDS when you meet the AIDS virus? And what I'm saying is? If you study survivors and you study success, you have something to teach. It is not an accident when you don't die when you're supposed to according to a doctor. What is it? It is a change in you and a change in your life. That's part of what we're talking about. There are things called. Neuro receptors you our body mind. You are not a body and mind if you change your disease changes because your body changes really yes. You're not your body and mind. You're not just a body, or you want some interesting. Yeah, facts, things like people with multiple personalities, yes, can have a disease in one personality, not in another can have an allergy in personality, not in another studying, and this goes all around the planet. This fascinating, yes. Yeah nobody ever told me that in medical school. Nobody ever told me in nineteen, thirty three I think it was Carl Jung interpreted the dream and made a physical diagnosis so I work with dreams with drawings. You're what's going on in your body. We can bring that awareness out. So does this mean that each of us has control over our diseases remarkably slow listen to a bunch of surprising things never taught me in school, either where the only animal in the world dies on a given day of the week more than other days. That is Mondays people, the majority of people who have a heart home let me. Let me interrupt this for one second, because that's very important statement number one is we all die someday? Get the bad news over in the beginning of the program. Death is not a failure. Okay, but the hospital everybody dies at two in the morning. We have incredible control over when we die now there's a reason i. Well my communist try dying Newnan Hospital. They won't let because reputation is based on. You're not dying and the other is families that you don't say to each other I love you, you say. You're rotten, mother, kid, you know father, so you die at two in the families asleep or left, but if you have that kind of control over turning off your live. You also have a lot of control over turning the mind. Remarkably so when you have gall bladder surgery. Room faces trees instead of a wall. You're out about a week earlier
BSP: Believer Skeptic Podcast
Aaahh!!! Classic Monsters
"We thought we would talk. Hello Classic movie monsters or I guess. A derivative thereof You know all the films like Frankenstein Dracula creature the Black Lagoon and salon boy. Oh boy so yeah so we are. Actually we each picked one classic creature. We're going to be sharing history in details about that creature in the story about the story about them so should we. Should we drinks. Yeah okay so I'm going to actually hand the mic over to Tracy and you because I she has forty drinks that she's going to be sure they're all so I'm focusing on vampires and at total wine there was actually quite a bit to choose from uh-huh depending on how elaborate you WanNa get with the topic. There was even like walking dead wine assume that seemed like sheeting. That seemed like that would be better for his. Obviously yeah it's because it's actually from the TV exactly. So I can't have rick on the cover and be thinking of Bram Stoker works for me with that said that I brought three drinks because being hungover and being two o'clock in me not having lunch it just seems weird like crack. Open a bottle of wine right now but I do have Francis Coppola diamond red plans talk a little bit about Coppola going on. Because you can't really talk about Dracula directly without talking about Coppola and then I also because I don't like I said if I'm going to open that I also brought four. They use my teeth to pull the bag out. I have a lovely temper neo. Oh I love to drag on. And we'll talk a little bit about what dragons dragons relates reverse dragged him the vampire at least in literature but like I said that's a bit heavy so honestly what I think I'm going to start with. Breath is a nice blood. Orange Margarita and S- To serve it in as they said I just live seven houses down I brought on my own Hamilton Sippy Cup when I say Hola pouring that that's awesome chewing that All amazing choices see. That doesn't take a random rationalization cody did you notice that mixture. You have doesn't actually have to kill it in it. Oh I I forgot I also brought my own patrol. Never leave home without it. So the monster I chose today is Where wolves so what? I'm drinking today. Is a Lithuanian heritage. Beer called where wolf it's literally called Werewolf and it has a quite a high alcohol content. So that's so funny because just right before for the show Tracy and I were talking about how we like picking drinks. That aren't just the name. They require narrative. Chris here's where we'll there's nothing with that sound so bitchy all right so Chris is still looking to see what kind of beer is is it. Strong connect have a taste. Today makes one of us. Oh that is delicious is really good. That's dangerous Oh my God. I'm just GonNa Covet this break a command. It's a Belgian dark El okay. I'M GONNA try that too. Yeah so for my drink. I'm actually Old England. I'm actually doing Frankenstein. And so and that was that was what I was GONNA do. I was I went into English. Oh I hear terrible and like you know what. I just can't drink this after my night. I'm going to get something good. Mary Shelley found something actually liked Mary. Shelley well well I whenever you look at all these old stories. I what I think of it is. They all kind of intertwined sometimes in ways and they're just kind of these wild crazy stories stories. So I've found a blackberry merlot called twisted Vine Ohio. Yeah good expected to get a couple. I rolls maybe like really all right so with that I will get into history I didn't want to do anything like Hollywood movie. Poor history because that would have been very long and excessive in instead I thought I would give a weird overview on the history of monsters the word monster itself derives from the Latin word monstrum meaning to demonstrate or monarch meaning to warn There's also the Latin word monstrum which Just means abnormal or supernatural but can also mean wonder or miracle generally speaking monsters are physical whether real or imagined representation of those things society as Dean leaned unknown or unnatural and most mostly those things that we fear and cannot explain physically. Speaking a monster may have some unusual characteristics. In fact one time things such as two-headed cavs or babies born with abnormalities were considered monsters so basically anything that was outside of what society claimed as quote. Normal aw was seen as monstrous of course as we know in addition to the physical characteristics. Munster's we'll do some terrible things or act out on the way beyond the standing of society being set that any one of us in this room could be considered a monster me with my blue hair and you both being super tall me with my gay so monsters there's all of you There are a ton of tons of monsters that go back in history. There were monsters that were found in cave paintings represented by animal human hybrids which unlikely cliches in real life hence monsters or at least at the conclusion that historians drew in Greek and Roman mythology monsters were perceived as a form of displeasure from the gods examples being cyclops Gorgon. Medusa Centaurs Sirens and so on. It seems that in religion like Judaism Christianity and Islam. They avoided talking about monsters aside from stories related to Satan and the power of evil in Hinduism monsters. A lot more prevalent. you see gods depicted with extra limbs or as an animal human hybrid and in native American culture. You have creatures such as the Wendy Go. Skin walkers and even sasquatch after the renaissance period with science becoming a new a fairly new thing. It really tried to attempt to explain what exactly monsters were to no avail in the gothic period we were graced. With two of the most infamous monsters Frankenstein and Dracula as well as some of the creepiest fairy tales by the brothers Grimm in psychology. Carl Jung tried to explain monsters as any central part of development might in that they were seen as the quote otherness within ourselves. I kind of discussed with this with you. Cody Day in that how I was talking how we need to balance the light with dark so I think that's the same thing it's arguing and our gang. We all have a fascination with monsters. This podcast is an example. Cody are armchair. Chair crypto zoologists. That even if these creatures don't exist it's that innate curiosity of the possibility of their existence as society changes the faces of monsters changing. We'll continue you to do so when before we used to be freed of things like trolls and elves. Today's where we fear things such as candyman or to say that once monsters collection of our society and then all the terrible things in it as well as an escape from those terrible things monsters are ever evolving and as long as we have fears and terrible things going on in our world they will. Oh not go away in my opinion. That's escapism at its best interest inc.. I have like a believer skeptic question but I guess I wanNA save it maybe. For debunk okay. But I'm afraid that I'm going to. I'm going to forget it. I'm going to ask now for both of Y'all are there any monsters or creatures that either of you actually believe in. Yes yes. That's probably what got me. Hooked on your podcast in the first place you were immediately talking about things that I have seen with my own eyes so I can only to Chris as a believer in many of the things. He's seen. Yeah I'm sitting there at work. Listen to going. Oh my God I saw that too says yes shadow people. I can't talk about that right now. Is Definitely I've had encounters encounters with shadow people. But as far as what we're talking about today. The closest is a boyfriend who thought he was a vampire. Oh Shit are you talking about that in your story. No I wasn't going to because it's complicated and messy advocates network. Deep Ball Game L.. Dated someone who thought he was a vampire sidelining. I think he was just really sexually confused. Needed to explore some things and that arena. He had seen the horror many
